    This is our 1st SOS product, but we'll be buying more. We have only been through a few lessons, but we've had no trouble so far. I am not one for sitting through tutorials, but I have found my way through set-up easily. We have only encountered one minor issue. I purchased SOS because my son is dyslexic and really needs the read back feature. However, the computer is only capable of reading sounds instead of whole words, so it breaks words in odd places. My son says he is getting uses to it though. Now I am looking to purchase additional subjects.
